Wonderful Flavor, great presentation. The recipe does ezactly one sandwich loaf and the amount of filling is pefect - no leftovers. I added 10 drops of hot sauce. When done (before baking) I rolled two together, covered them and froze them and them vacuum sealed them, this way they will be great until Christmas - Out of he freezer and pop into the oven Another winner Dorothy
SOOOOO good! I made these many times before but ommited the peppers because my family does not like them. Perfect little appetizers that I am "forced" to make for all of my family parties!
I'd have given this a higher rating if possible. I followed the recipe exactly and I'll do it the same next time. These were excellent!!! Thanks for posting.
